Welcome to the

International Accreditation and Recognition Council

Who we are…

Founded in 1999, the International Accreditation and Recognition Council (IARC) is a not-for-profit education management association run by an elected committee.

IARC provides opportunities for quality focussed like-minded institutions and educators to network and collaborate, functioning to outline benchmarks for excellence in education.

What we do…

The council’s primary purpose is to provide a simple recognition and accreditation system for distinguishing quality, post secondary education. This includes, but is not limited to, vocational, distance, adult and continuing education in the international education industry. As IARC is a global organisation, we operate independently from government.

We focus on ensuring quality and consistency of courses and services provided by our member’s schools, colleges, universities and institutions. We actively work with those education establishments. Annual auditing and school visits are examples of this.

Recognition by IARC provides an assurance that a member institution has satisfied a set of academic, ethical and operational standards. IARC standards are unanimously agreed upon by the committee and members.
